immediate affect. if you look at a storm, even a storm as great as katrina, which was obviously devastating to an entire region and probably greater in terms of its impact than the current storm, you did see it in the numbers during the one quarter in 2005, but the rebound was extremely quick. you can barely see the affect of the storm in gdp numbers after that. the one nice thing about our economy it tends to recover quite quickly. >> do you agree with that? what's your take. on top of everything you have this gas problem as well. everyone wanting gasoline and unable to fwet it. >> yep. my mother-in-law is out in new jersey. she got her power back on thursday. i was happy that she was okay. i think just the way we do the numbers has goofy implication that your house gets knocked down. you rebuild a new one. you are no better off than you were before bit counts as an increase to the gdp because they are counting the part you are doing right now, not what was already there. >> what about the infrastructure the story? governor cuomo last week said when new york rebuilds it will re

katrina in 2005. the sheer size and scope of the destruction from hurricane sandy stretches for hundreds of miles, from the jersey shore, to long island. this was a big storm, and has brought a significant part of the country to its knees. >> look at this line! it goes back -- this line goes six miles. look at this! >> reporter: with power still out to millions of people, one of the biggest daily concerns has become gasoline. some lines at stations that still have gas stretched for blocks. tempers of the drivers in those lines frayed. and police have even been called in to patrol the lines to keep the peace. >> i need to run my taxi too. >> reporter: there were some signs of meaningful progress. in new york city, more train and subway service was added. all told, the electricity is back on for more than 4 million homes and businesses across the northeast. >> oh, my god! >> reporter: this evening, the lights came back on in new york's greenwich village, something worth celebrating. and all but two of atlantic city's casinos are back in business. what are the odds of that? but for many mor

already started hearing comparisons to katrina, there's a reason for it. things are starting to look and feel like a deep, long-haul disaster. the grisly business of finding bodies, the daily realization that the face of the earth has changed, especially along the jersey shore. this is the new contour of the jersey shore. and right where we are is the borderline between two towns which have been in the news, bayhead to the north. six miles down is seaside heights, new jersey, almost impossible to see what's left of the ferris wheel and the amusement tower. from seaside heights, new jersey, this is what we found on the beach, one of the 57 chevy replicas that was part of the ride. the ocean gave this quite a ride. but just pause and think about the number of 4 and 5-year-olds who got their first thrill on a carnival ride at the beach right in this front seat with the safety bar down to protect them. there are two kinds of damage along the jersey shore. these are the first pictures taken from beach level of some of the fanciest sections. one of these houses was valued at $13 million th
